A patient with bilateral annular inflammatory choroidal detachments had unexplained myopia as his presenting symptom. The indirect ophthalmoscope was essential in making the diagnosis. The absence of retinal holes and subretinal fluid helped us to diagnose the bilateral choroidal detachments. The inflammatory detachments improved on steroid treatment as have previously reported cases. This case report should remind every ophthalmologist to look for annular choroidal detachments in patients with unexplained myopia.
